1918 Liberty Standing Quarter Dollar. PCGS graded MS-66 Full Head PQ. CAC Approved. A lovely choice gem Standing Liberty Quarter. Bright silver color bursts forth from original surfaces unaffected by toning. The strong strike impresses us, making this a desirable specimen. Pop 33; 10 finer, 9 in 67, 1 in 68 (PCGS # 5721) .

Historic note: A desirable early Type 2 issue. Contrary to legend, there was no public outcry against Liberty's exposed breast on the 1916-17 Type 1 quarters. Rather, the design was modified upon the insistence of Hermon MacNeil and to improve the flow of metal during striking. Due to design limitations, however, Full Heads are rarely seen on the Type 2 dates from 1917-30, although those struck at Philadelphia, like this 1918, tend to show finer detail overall.
Estimated Value $3,000 - 3,500.
Ex: Bear Collection.

Realized $3,795
